Salt and sacrifice

And we continue with a title of another kind, but also in line with a popular game: Salt and Sanctuary. For the second time, the Kingdom of Alterston will open its doors to us this week, for better but above all for worse. Because salt and sacrifice along the same lines that preceded it. Thus it is a game that combines role-playing and platforming which is very demanding. You play as a criminal who, to avoid the death penalty, allows himself to enroll in the camp of the inquisitors, these hunters of heretical witches. This new episode should especially take advantage of Internet features, such as the ability to summon an ally. Note that you can of course customize your witch hunter by choosing one of the eight classes available in the game (Assassin, Cleric, Fighter, Swordsman, Warrior, Paladin, Guardian or Sage).

Al-Fath songs

the computer

Lately, there’s been a lot of talk about Embracer Group, the company that bought most Western studios from Square Enix, with licenses like Tomb Raider or Deus Ex. But looking at the group’s previous list of acquisitions, there is one name that seemed less well known than the others: Coffee Stain Studios. Well, that’s so good, because this week the indie studio is revealing to us their new title, Songs of Conquest. Inspired by Heroes of Migh and Magic and Total War, the game is sold to us as a tactical game full of RPG elements and highlighting the spirit of the community. Concretely what does this mean? Well, Songs of Conquest mixes turn-based combat inspired by the classics of the genre, class system, possibility to build your kingdom and cooperation between two players (local or online). At E3 2021, Coffee Stain Studios promised us great potential for gamers with a creative spirit, Including text events or dialogues invented by the community from scratch.

This War of Mine: Final Cut

the computer PS5 Xbox Series

And let’s leave the new classic that’s back: This War of Mine. Released in 2014, the title from 11bit Studios gave us a somewhat special survival game. As a group of war-torn civilians, your goal is to survive until the end of the conflict. During the day, you will have to walk around your shelter while avoiding sniper attacks. Once the sun goes down, it’s time to go exploring to bring in food and other resources to improve your living conditions, or even save your comrades. Between the soundtrack, artistic direction, but above all a system of particularly credible cornelian choices, This War of Mine gave us an original approach that highlights an often overlooked reality When It Comes to War Stories: Civilian Stories. If you’ve never had this game, which scored 17 out of 20 in our columns, then Final Cut seems like a good time to start. This release includes all updates, expansions (including more story-driven stories) and some technical improvements.

We were here forever

the computer PS5 Xbox Series

Odds are that the name we were here isn’t familiar to you either. This series of cooperative puzzle games started in 2017 with the game of the same name. After that, Total Mayhem Games introduced two more sets (we’ve been here too and we’ve been here together), underrated than the first but still good. Unsurprisingly, the studio decided to re-record the fourth composition. We Were Here Forever takes you to a horrific prison-like mansion in the middle of Antarctica. Despite the distance, you will have to communicate to solve the puzzles that prevent you from moving forward. This new address is reliable Small asset-level level design and the densest spaces. This prompted us to give the title very promising during preview. Note that if you want to try the formula while waiting for this fourth installment, you can get We Were Here for free on Steam.

A bit of a dread to finish? If we haven’t told you about Deadly Broadcast, Apphic Games’ co-op survival horror game, it’s because a larger title of the same genre risks taking it down entirely: Evil Dead: The Game. As its name suggests, this title from Saber Interactive (another Embracer Group acquisition) is inspired by the terrifying Evil Dead license. As you play in multiplayer (co-op or PvP), the title introduces you to the avatar of Ash Williams or one of his partners in order to form a team of four survivors ready to face the dangers of a zombie apocalypse. While crafting and exploration will be part of the game, action lovers should not get bored. Saber Interactive is already promising us a special grumble title, Also its last title of the genre was, World War Z. Add to this a game that found its audience at the time the script of the Sam Raimi movie and you have Evil Dead: The Game.
